Spring brings alive many hopes and dreams, you know. Here’s a big project we’ve started on recently: Yep, that’s the last of the snow melting on the deck while we plant seeds!

No Longer Waiting…

…for Spring! It is really here in the Kansas City area. My milk bottle is happliy host to the season’s first daffodils. Judging from the number of buds still out there, we’ll have another batch to grace our table soon! Ahhhhh…. Of course, I am still waiting to figure out a whole lot of other […]

The Musical Fruit

We have a new afternoon nap time activity at our house. We’d share it with little brother, but he keeps eating and throwing the “gravel” at the “construction site”. The good news is that adding a bin of beans to some of our playtime means that the boys are no longer using the construction trucks […]

Oh, Yum!

Completely inspired by Heather’s chicken casserole, I concocted this one for lunch one day last week. I had trouble holding back to save half of it for lunch the next day! Really, it all started a few weeks ago when I decided to make home made french onion soup. I essentially used the recipe in […]

Getting “My” Shawl On

I finished the prayer shawl I made for my mom, and while I really wanted to hop on a plane to Houston and deliver it in person, I had to settle for dropping it in the mail. I love how it turned out, and I think she will love it too. I knit it out […]

One little boy at our house just didn’t like the cold this year at all. Family fun in the snow was cut short by tears frequently, and our single trip to go sledding even including more crying than laughter. There were some good belly laughs on the down hills, but overall, he just doesn’t like […]

Finally Finished February

The February block for the SSS has been off the needles for a few days. I am happy to both have it finished and with how it turned out, but I just couldn’t cast on another log cabin block. I also finished the prayer shawl I was knitting for my mom, but I’ll share it […]

Crayola Boat Races

I stood on our driveway yesterday afternoon while we were playing in the snow and noticed all the runoff in the gutter; a rainy day favorite from my younger years flashed before my eyes. We spent many a rainy day making and racing crayola boats; in Houston there was not the spring melt to produce […]

The Very Snowy Caterpillar

We’ve had snowman trouble at our house this year. The only one we were able to even make fell over before I could even take a single photo of him. I blame it on the fact that I grew up in Houston; there are not many opportunities for snowman building in that part of Texas. […]

Welcome Spring?

I can’t tell you how happy we are to finally have spring after the super snowy winter we’ve had this year. Trouble is, winter just won’t give up around here: That photo was snapped today at about 9:45 pm right after I finished shoveling the driveway for the second time. I don’t really know how […]
